A stroll through the Cassava Patch

Bainimarama was walking through the cassava patch near the Nabua Creek after a stressful day presiding over his ego.

'What majestic leaves!'
'What powerful water!'
'Even the animals are smiling at me!'
He said to himself.

As he was walking near the creek, he heard a rustling in the bushes behind him. He turned to look, and saw a 7-foot grizzly bear charging towards him.

He ran as fast as he could up the path. He looked over his shoulder and saw that the bear was closing in on him.

He looked over his shoulder again, and the bear was even closer. He tripped and fell on the ground. He rolled over to pick himself up but saw that the bear was right on top of him, reaching for him with his left paw and raising his right paw to strike him.

At that instant Bainimarama cried out, 'Oh my God!'
Time Stopped.
The bear froze.
The tapioka leaves became still and silent.

As a bright light shone upon the man, a voice came out of the sky. 'You deny my existence for all these years, teach others I don't exist, and even credit your coup-evils to me. Do you expect me to help you out of this predicament? Am I to count you as a believer?'

Bainimarama looked directly into the light and said, 'It would be hypocritical of me to suddenly ask you to treat me as a Christian now, but perhaps you could make the BEAR a Christian?'

'Very Well,' said the voice.

The light went out. The sounds of the Tapioka forest resumed.
And the bear dropped his right paw, brought both paws together, bowed his head & spoke…

'Lord bless this food, which I am about to receive from thy bounty through Christ our Lord, Amen.'
